As a professional organizer, I am quite decisive about what should be kept or discarded. I know right from wrong, left from right and black versus white. But why is that I cannot discern the fine line between collecting and hoarding?! This elusive distinction is what keeps me in check – most the time. Although the inexplicable (well, it is kind of explicable – I love soda, charming graphics and vintage packaging.) desire to continually amass as many pop bottles of long ago defunct beverage companies is bordering on bananas.
At what point is a collection considered a compulsion?
Contemplating this over a cold Coca-Cola in a glass bottle, natch.
